Aliens Versus Zombies


Sci-fi / zombie hybrid (not horror)


When the pandemic killed 82% of the human race in just six months and turned most of the rest into ravening zombies, it seemed that things couldn’t possibly get worse. Humanity’s days were numbered—and it wasn’t a big number.


Then, fourteen months after the zombie apocalypse began, an alien invasion fleet arrived with more than twenty thousand armed ships and two million ground troops ready for battle. With no organized resistance possible, it should have been a cakewalk to conquer and settle Earth.

Sunrise Destiny


Paranormal / detective / alien-abduction sci-fi thriller


Ever have one of those weeks? While working a case, private detective Donatello Sunrise is abducted by aliens. And that’s the highlight of his week.

Somehow, Sunrise and his hooker girlfriend, Lola, must find a way to save two worlds from disaster by helping the good guys defeat the bad guys.


The trick is figuring out which is which.

The Mars Imperative


Hard sci-fi / exploration / terraforming


Mars is like a frontier town, filled with prospectors and mining camps. It’s a place of deadly dust storms, rockslides,  and near-vacuum atmosphere. And then there’s the terrorist. 


When young James McKie leaves for his first job in space, he has no idea what he’s getting himself into. Traveling to Mars is harrowing enough. Surviving once he gets there is another matter entirely. Yet there is a discovery waiting to be made, one that could open Mars to human colonization—if it doesn’t kill everyone first.

The Tesserene Imperative


Hard sci-fi / deep-space prospecting / first contact


It was supposed to be a routine mission, but in an asteroid belt nothing is routine.


When prospecting ship Shamu is almost destroyed in a distant asteroid belt, the crew of five is left with three days of air, little water, a smashed starflight drive, and no hope of rescue. It will take every ounce of ingenuity and stubborn pigheadedness they possess to find a way to survive.


In the shadows of a small moon, there's a discovery waiting to be made—the secret to first contact. Will it open the stars to widespread exploration, or doom mankind to extinction?
